Default Leveling coils

Hey ram guys! Has anyone used the tuff truck Ttc-1213 springs or the 1216's? Both say 2 1/2 level spring one has a cap. Of 5000lbs the other is 2610lbs. 5k says for plows, but was wonder if the other is fine for diesels. Also do I need new shocks, end links ,& alignment?

Never used them before so idk about the springs.
I would get new extended shocks for the front and an alignment along with it. I had stock shocks on with mine for awhile and the longer ones made a huge difference.

Just figured new springs would be better than spacers. Right front of my truck sits 3/8 lower but dodge rep. Says its with in specs! Figured I'd kill 2 birds w/ 1 stone!!!

i had a 2" bds on my truck.. you'll deffinitly want new shocks that are 2" longer. as far as the coils i didnt notice a difference in ride at all. bds makes a steal spacer and its pretty sweet. coils or spacers its gonna still ride pretty much the same. you wont need an alignment.. it doesnt mess with any of your steering. except you will have to straighten your steering wheel a bit. remember though its gonna push your axle over a bit too unless u get a adjustable track bar. i never even had to get an alignment after i put a 8" long arm on my truck..
